This grant was a vital component in continuing my work with Garden to Grinds in this community. Previously, I had limited success with donated items, operated without a budget, nor had I been awarded any grants. Tired of forging this difficult path on my own, I was at a turning point. Receiving The Pollination Project grant infused me with a sense of pride and purpose to continue my work. I am honored and humbled to be included in a group of individuals who care deeply about humanity and the planet. The integrity and compassion of the group has helped me maintain high standards of organic practices when growing good food for our community.
